A socially inept male computer geek whose sole redeeming quality is the ability to write computer code. A miserable failure at interacting with women, playing and following sports, playing musical instruments, things that most men are capable of doing, a code bastard is only at home in a cubicle behind a keyboard. Characterized by total failure in all aspects of life not involving computers, the "c.b." is a lonely, bitter sad individual, shunned by society, usually develops alcohol and drug addiction and dies alone.
"I went to Blacksburg to visit Brian, and I was hoping we could go out and score some college nookie, but he is such a code bastard, he is like kryptonite to chicks."
